White Lives Matter Protesters' Attire Contradicts Their Message

These are White Lives Matter protesters demonstrating outside the Houston NAACP office on Sunday. One of the organizers said the movement is trying to celebrate heritage and culture, but some protesters' clothing and signs could tell a different story.
Video from local outlet KPRC appears to show a white supremacist version of the Celtic cross. And this video from KIAH shows a sign that seems to refer to the 14-word white supremacist slogan, "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."
About 20 members of the movement said they were protesting what they believe to be the NAACP's inaction regarding violence against police officers and destruction of property.
